ORCA expands its SwimRun-specific wetsuit range

With the growth in popularity of SwimRun events, inspired by the original ÖtillÖ in Sweden, Orca (www.orca.com) have extended their sport-specific offering fro the SwimRun discipline with their new SwimRun Core wetsuit. Priced at a very competitive £149 (half the price of their range-topping RS1), it looks like it could be an attractive option for those considering trying out this format of multisport racing. Here are the basic details on the new suit.

ORCA LAUNCHES NEW SWIMRUN CORE WETSUIT

NEW INNOVATIONS ENHANCE THE LATEST WETSUIT MADE FOR THIS NEW SPORT

  • 2mm high visibility neoprene arms
  • Handy outer side pockets for better storage
  • Arms can be removed to cool down in the run
  • Extended front zip makes it easier to ventilate on the run

ORCA SWIMRUNCORE

SwimRun is an up-and-coming sport that combines running and swimming over land, sea and lakes, with numerous transitions between the two.

Originating in Sweden in 2006, the first competition was called ÖtillÖ, which means “island to island”. It has grown steadily ever since.

This sport has a number of things that make it completely unique, and while there is no federation governing it, it maintains some rather different rules.

This is a sport with many transitions (without any gear changes, just getting in and out of the water), where it is mandatory to start and finish the race with all the same items. The course must also be completed in pairs, with no more than 10m between the two at any point during the race.

ORCA SWIMRUNCORE

After the release of the RS1 Swimrun wetsuit, “swimrunners” we saw a gap in the market to further develop our offering for this unique sport by adding another wetsuit to this Swimrun wetsuit range.

ORCA’S SWIMRUN CORE

Orca's Swimrun Core wetsuit offers a price-point option (just ​£149) for swimrun race events that will give you the flexibility required for the swim, while not compromising on the freedom of movement and storage that is essential for the run. Orca offers male and female versions, in a full size range so this new wetsuit can be enjoyed by anyone getting into this exciting new sport.

We have also created several accessories specially made for “swimrunners”, taking into account the requirements of this race alongside Orca’s usual high performance fabrics and attention to detail such as silicone swimcap, high vis rash guard, goggles and many more coming soon...

THE HIGHLIGHTS:

Removable sleeves: Fully removable 2mm high vis neoprene arms make this suit extremely versatile - arms can be removed to cool down in the run and added back on for extra warmth and buoyancy in the swim.

Outer pockets: Handy outer side pockets provide storage of race accessories or your suits arms when not in use.

Extended front zip: This extended front zip makes it easier to get the suit on and off and allows for ventilation on the run if required.
